Abstract

During a study of newly isolated yeast strains utilizing -xylose as sole carbon source, eight strains, isolated from decayed wood, were found to represent two novel anamorphic, ascomycetous yeast species based on sequence analysis of the 26S rDNA D1/D2 domain and internal transcribed spacer region, and phenotypic characterization. The names sp. nov. (type strain MLRW 6-2=AS 2.4030=CBS 11389) and sp. nov. (type strain MLRW 7-1=AS 2.4031=CBS 11390) are proposed for these two novel species; the closest relatives of the two novel species are and , respectively.
